After reviewing 'All The Right Moves', Bryn and I tried to imagine what came next for his character Stef and came up with the concept of a Tom Cruise Shared Universe! Join us as we haphazardly try to link as many Tom Cruise films together as possible to create new timelines that inevitably turn him into either Ethan Hunt or a vampire.

October 25, 2020

We're popping back to the 80s for a very early Tom Cruise film that hasn't stood the test of time quite as well as some of his other classics. Bryn & I delve into the wild world of high school football, hormones, shitty home towns & excessive synths. Did we learn any lessons along the way? Not really. Did we have a lot of laughs though? We sure did!

In our stunning conclusion of A Few Good Men, Ginger & I cover the court case in great detail, tripping over the delivery of the famous lines from the iconic Jack Nicholson scenes. We continue our discussion on how messed up military culture is, why it was important for Demi Moore's character to be female in a sea of angry white men, Tom Cruise's tradition of playing the playboy-character-learns-a-valuable-lesson & much more.

YOU CAN'T HANDLE THE TRUTH! Yep it's time for that movie with the very famous line that has been parodied at least 10,000 times in pop culture. Ginger joins me to discuss Aaron Sorkin's 1st screenplay that is honestly way better than it has any right to be considering it's a very serious military legal drama. Please note: We stuff up military & legal jargon at absolutely every turn while also continuously scoffing at the obsession with "codes" and calling people sir, so be warned if you're a military aficionado because you're gonna get so mad at us, lol!

If ever there was a role that Tom Cruise absolutely smashed, defying all expectations as a Hollywood mega star, it has to be 1994's Interview with the Vampire. I am joined by Ava who is well versed in vampire lore, to discuss this dramatic, visually pleasing and often homoerotic film co-starring Brad Pitt and Kirstin Dunst. Join us as we cover vampire stereotypes, the morality of feeding upon racists and endlessly complain about Louis and his complaining,
